A husband, a wife, a stranger, a knife: Roman Polanski sets them all adrift on a weekend filled with simmering resentments and gut-churning suspense in his seminal psychological thriller, still one of the greatest feature debuts in film history.

"11.1. Polanskin debyyttiohjaus on muotokieleltään jo melko valmista kauraa. Odotin suoraviivaisempaa jännitystarinaa ja selkeämpiä roolijakoja (hyvä vs. paha -akselilla), mutta Veitsi vedessä pelaa onnistuneesti katsojan odotuksilla ja tarjoilee useamman yllätyksen niin juonenkäänteissä kuin sen kolmen päähahmon käytöksessä. Aika paljon hillitympi hahmotutkielma kuin miehen kuuluisammat työt, mutta ei välttämättä yhtään huonompi ainakaan sen takia. Krzysztof Komedan sound"
